Updated: Aug 24, 2020

GUIDANCE: New Marking Rules for Goods Made in Hong Kong – Executive Order 13936


PURPOSE The purpose of this memorandum is to provide guidance on the new country of origin marking rules for goods produced in Hong Kong based on the President’s Executive Order (EO) on Hong Kong Normalization (EO 13936, dated July 14, 2020). SUMMARY On July 14, 2020, the President signed EO 13936 on Hong Kong Normalization. The EO suspends the application of section 201(a) of the United States-Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992, as amended (22 U.S.C. 5721(a)), to 19 U.S.C. 1304, Marking of imported articles and containers.  Appropriate actions must be commenced within 15 days (effective July 29, 2020) of the EO’s issue date.  GUIDANCE The position set forth in this document is applicable as of July 29, 2020. A transition period will be granted for importers to implement marking consistent with this position for imported goods produced in Hong Kong. Such goods, when entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption into the United States, after September 25, 2020, must be marked to indicate that their origin is “China” for purposes of 19 U.S.C. 1304. Transition Period CBP will grant a 45-day transition period, until September 25, 2020, in order to give the trade sufficient time to adjust to the new marking rules.  During this period, Personnel from the Ports of Entry and Centers of Excellence and Expertise (Centers) are directed to neither issue marking notices, nor take further enforcement actions on goods produced in Hong Kong for purposes of 19 U.S.C. 1304.  Centers should take measures to inform accounts of these new marking rules for Hong Kong set forth in the EO.
